Incredible number of geese. One thing is the noise, but they have a tendency to S___ all over the place to. I hope they stay out of your garden ... :-X

Has anyone played with digiscoping? The first picture is the view through an iPad.... the second picture is the iPad through a 15x70 binocular...

The pictures are completely unedited, with the exception of shrinking down the size for the CR website....

I went out to the lake again at the weekend, I tried to focus manually this time and I got some good results, I’ll start off with my favourite pic of the day, ISO 400, 640th, f8 shot with my Sigma 500mm then cropped about 50%, I still see that it’s a bit soft, can anyone help my improve my sharpness…..without buying and using LR!!!!
Second pic was shot at the same settings, and so was the third!!
70D - 100-400L - 24-105L - 50 f1.8 II - Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6 - Sigma 610 ST.
Next on the hit list, and in no particular order -  1.4xTCIII + 2xTCIII + 100 f2.8 USM macro + 430 EX-II

Awesome ... looks like it just finished meditating ... it is very rare to see a bird photo where the bird looks very peaceful, coz almost all bird images look as if the bird is in a hurry or nervous or tensed or edgy etc ... so this one is very unique in that way.
